When did everyone go on maternity leave?

Hi, with my first pregnancy i worked until i was 38 weeks and then was induced at 39 weeks because i had cholestasis. This pregnancy thought i would do the same and work until 38 weeks, so my planned date to leave work was 21st Jan (i am due 3rd Feb), but i have been really run down lately and am finding work really difficult (i work in admin, so am sat down all day - but it doesn't help sitting down all day), my bump is really low, literally resting on my knees!!!!! And its mush more tiring hav...

Natural or Medicated FET?

Karen i agree with Kara's points and would sway towards having a medicated fet. I had a natural fet at liverpool which didn't work and then had a medicated fet which worked and i got a bfp If you have any questions feel free to pm me. Good Luck xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sleep - Early Riser

Hi everyone Well for the past week Eliana has been waking up at 5.30am and wants to get up!!!!!!!!!!! I have tried everything, leaving her to cry, feeding her water, feeding her milk, cuddles to see if she will go back to sleep. She was sleeping till 6am / 6.30am. She goes to bed at 7pm. She is teething, she has 2 teeth coming on top gum. She doesn't seem to be waking up hungry because she will just have a little milk. The only difference in her sleeping habits are that she is now sleeping solid...

Cats and pregnancy/babies

I have two cats and they were a great comfort when i was pregnant they always used to snuggle up on my knee, even when there wasn't much room left on my knee LOL!!! People did say to us 'are you going to get rid of them when baby is born' , i couldn't imagine getting rid of them they are part of our family and have always been my babies while we were going through tx. Since having eliana the cats are not allowed upstairs at night we close the living room door, (just incase they did decide to sle...

Itching all over

Glad that the itching has eased. I had cholestastis in pregnancy and my itching was in hands and feet and was worse during night and when i was hot. I had symptoms early on in pregnancy but had blood test and all was fine then the itching continued but they only gave me another blood test in my 3rd tri towards the end (my midwife left on maternity and they never asigned me another), lucky i had another test cos my tests results came back really high and i had to be induced. Take care and i'm sur...
